ROBBIE: Daddy, I want to hear all about the War. Was it exciting?
ALEC: No, Robbie. Most of the time it is very boring.
ROBBIE: Con told me the trenches were full of rats. Ugh. Is that true?
ALEC: Indeed it is. So this is Con?
ROBBIE: He used to work in the stables. Con also told me they were fighting for Belgium.
ALEC: That’s what people were told.
ROBBIE: And Belgium is like Ireland, it’s another small country. And when Belgium was free then Ireland would be too. Con tells me everything.
